Goodbye, Dragon Inn PG rating

An exquisite, wry tribute to the experience of cinema-going from director Tsai Ming-liang.

Comedy 2003 82 mins

Director: Tsai Ming-liang



In Taipei City, an ageing picture palace is screening King Hu’s ‘Dragon Inn’ to a meagre audience of tourists and gossipers, the remaining few staff, and perhaps even a ghost or two before it shuts its doors forever. An exquisite, wryly funny and tender tribute to the experience of movie-going, Tsai Ming-liang's beguiling drama is a poignant love letter to cinema.

Ranked joint 108th in the 2022 Sight and Sound Great Films of All Time poll.
